Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $199,985)

The 4th Judicial Circuit of South Carolina will implement a coordinated, comprehensive, systems-wide problem-solving initiative in four counties. The initiative will target offenders ages 17-30 with drug and drug-related charges. The goals of the initiative include (1) engaging the community in defining issues of concern to be addressed by the initiative; (2) reducing recidivism among offenders entering Pretrial Diversion; and (3) strengthening the resources available to the judiciary for cases that require adjudication and supervision. The initiative will be piloted first in Chesterfield County, refined, and then expanded to the other three counties.
